Here is a short link to the Technet article that the first answer was posting:

You could also configure this using TWEAKUI, one of the Power Toys for XP. Go here:

and download TWEAKUI. Install it, then open it up and click on the Logon tab to set it.

I think what this person wants to know is how do they bypass the logon screen on an XP Pro computer that has the require CTL+ALT+DEL plus user name and password requirement for XP Pro.

If the computer has this security requirement enabled, there really isn't a way to bypass it to gain access to the computer. The tech articles mentioned assume that you have access to it as well as Joe's TweakUI advise. To use TweakUI one must have access to the computer to install it. Further if the computer is part of a network running W2K AD or W03 AD, group policy may have been applied and depending upon that group policy, further restrictions to access that computer or the domain and portions thereof may apply.
